Supporting Healthy Pregnancy and Natural Birth
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug-free discipline meaning that the risks associated with it are very low. Adverse events are very rare and your chiropractor will assess you individually for any risks before commencing care. In general, there are no increased risks or side effects with chiropractic for pregnant women. Your prenatal chiropractor may use special techniques or table modifications to avoid unnecessary pressure on the abdomen.
Yes! Chiropractors are all adequately trained to handle the needs of pregnancy; however some chiropractors have a special interest in serving pregnant women and have taken additional training. Chiropractors with the designation CACCP, DACCP or Webster Certification have taken additional training and achieved certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
